Commemorative Labels

We need more Commemorative labels please. Honour your grandfather, uncle, father, brother, mother, sister, aunt - anyone who has died in a war or conflct, or who died because of it. You do not have to know the person(s) you are honouring.

Using waterproof ink, you can write the person's name on a ribbon or fabric. Or, as below, you can sew the name onto fabric. If you use fabric, please let us have it with no raw edges.

The commemorative labels will be sewn onto fabric and displayed with the poppies.

Here are some labels we have received so far:

When the guns fell silent at 11 AM on 11 November 1918), Private George Edwin Ellison’s name would forever be engraved in history as the last British soldier to die during WWI. Ellison had served in the Western Front for four years; he was killed at exactly 9:30 AM, four-and-a-half hours from when the armistice was signed. He was also one of the 11,000 individuals killed on the war’s last day.
